Parents’ Evening | Books

Parents’ evening tonight, most satisfactory. Evidently only around half the parents bother to go. The others are obviously too busy or something.

P came out of skool this evening most happily brandishing a little giveaway magazine that has been – um – given away to all the school kids. “Raring 2 Go!” it’s called, in an effort to entice youngsters into its pages. It’s a little booklet of “things to do in the holiday if you live in the area” – P was excited because she features in it! One of the farm shops I made a website for advertised in it and lazily pulled the ad content from the website – the picture they chose was one I took for the website of P feeding a donkey a carrot (Albert was his name, the donkey not the carrot).

Just finishing up on John Irving’s “Until I Find You” – highly good, if a bit of a return to his old obsessions.

Great recently were –
Mr Timothy by Louis Bayard – excellent romp
A History of the Judd School by Geoffrey Taylor – interesting-ish and sent shudders down my spine at every page
The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins – truly an important book
interestingly Dawkins’ wikipedia entry has been “hacked” and now reads THIS GUY DOESNT KNOW WHAT HE’S TALKING ABOUT, HE MAKES HUGE ASSUMPTIONS AND PLAYS ON THE IGNORANCE OF THE BRITISH POPULATION! GOD ROCKS.
